CS-16 CultureWell Chambered Coverglass Used To Validate A Reverse Genetic System For The Study of Orthobunyavirus

Orthobunyavirus is a genus of the Peribunyaviridae family in the order Bunyavirales, currently comprising ~170 recognized viruses. Most orthobunyavirus species are transmitted by gnats and cause diseases in animals or humans. Their genomic organization is such that reassortment with related viruses is possible, resulting in altered virulence and zoonotic potential. Shuni virus (SHUV) is an orthobunyavirus related to Schmallenberg virus (SBV) that causes neurological disease in … Continued

Microarray Technology for The Analysis Of The Secretome

A newly published editorial offers a comprehensive overview of the different approaches applied to the study the secretome, the subset of proteins secreted by a particular organism. Scientists are increasingly targeting this complex and homogenous collection of proteins with the hope to uncover new biochemical pathways and to identify new therapeutic and diagnostic targets. While … Continued

Coronavirus Antigen Microarray for SARS-CoV-2 Antibodies Analysis

The diagnosis of coronavirus infection relies on RT-PCR analysis of upper respiratory and nasopharyngeal specimens. The limited testing capacity and the wide variability of patients’ viral load have so far provided a narrow view of the pervasiveness of the infection among the population. A recently developed coronavirus antigen microarray represents a promising diagnostic and epidemiologic … Continued

Antigen Array For Serological Diagnosis For Severe Equine Asthma

Grace BioLabs Oncyte® NOVA slides and ProPlates® were used to elucidate previously unidentified allergens involved in the potential diagnosis of severe equine asthma (sEA). The microarray contained a complex matrix of fungi, bacteria, pollen, arthropods extracts, and proteins. It was tested against serum obtained from a mixed group of 138 horses living in varying environments. … Continued

Plasmonic gold chip for diagnosis of myocardial infarction

In a recent publication, Wei Xu et al. proposed a novel approach for the diagnosis and monitoring of markers of myocardial infarction. The method is based on on-chip microarray analysis of serum biomarkers (e.g., cardiac troponin I) and when coupled with NIR-FE (NearInfraRed – fluorescent enhancement) showed a considerable increase in sensitivity and specificity over … Continued

Grace Bio-Labs producing hand sanitizer and face masks

During COVID-19, Grace Bio-Labs quickly pivoted from biomolecular research to producing hand sanitizer and face masks. OSU-Cascades students were hired to help. 16,000 units of hand sanitizer have so far been produced.

ONCYTE® Protein Microarrays to study B cell response to avian influenza virus

Avian influenza viruses represent a major public health concern, and worldwide outbreaks raise the risk of a potential pandemic. Sero-epidemiological studies typically rely on data obtained through hemagglutination inhibition assays (HAI). HAI has been shown to display low sensitivity towards avian influenza antibodies resulting in difficult and inconsistent results interpretations. Furthermore, a previous protein array-based … Continued
